Any body got a dogwood tree to show.
« on: April 08, 2019, 10:57:58 PM »
The dogwood tree is strutting its stuff.



 Its overcast today, but it still looks nice.  It had a companion, but it got to looking bad and had to be cut.  During a major drought a few years back my wife had me put a 55 gallon drum by them with a tiny hole in the bottom to keep them alive.  banjo

We have a different species of Dogwood here.
It's an evergreen and has large fruit that look like strawberries. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornus_capitata

Seasons reversed so it's just ripening fruit now, and the local native birds really get into it, spread the seeds, hence it's considered "naturalised" now. It doesn't put on quite the same show when in flower, being an evergreen.

Redbuds are in the batters box right now.  Dogwoods are in the on deck circle.



 

It's always good to see the redbuds followed by the dogwoods.  We lost about 90% of the dogwoods to anthracnose, but there's still quite a few scattered throughout the woods.

I had to go look that up "dogwood anthracnose" disease.  I wonder if that is what took out my other tree?  What I read said that it was more prone to higher elevations.  That would pretty much leave Mississippi out, as the highest point in the state is right behind my house at a whopping 806 feet above sea level.

How long does the dogwood down under stay in bloom? @Ianab 

I don't have a lot of redbuds on my place, but lots of dogwoods.

Its a nice time of the year to be in the wood here in the South.  Banjo

Couple of weeks in the spring. It has large white flowers similar to the American species, but doesn't lose it's leaves over winter.

The pictures don't really capture it all. Our woods are full of blooms this year.

Were just at the tail end of the dogwoods here.

Ours are in bloom but the anthracnose is bad this year, we were very wet over a warmer winter. We used to have a couple of pagoda dogwoods in the woods, they are gone now, not real showy but I liked their form.

We have had a lot here this year as well.  Actually found about 100 young ones on our own place that I didn't realize were there.  Hoping to dig some up and transplant them come fall.
